View Full Version : My 'Ideal' Racquet on Paper

04-29-2005, 08:20 PM
I do not know what my ideal racquet would really be, but I would guess the following from what I know now:

Head size 95 sq. inches - 98
Length 27" - 27.25"
Weight 11.5 Oz
Swingweight 300 - 315
Stiffness 60-65
Balance Point -5 to 0 (Head light five points to even)

I pump that into racquet finder and i get:
Volkl Tour 9 V-Engine 16x19 Racquets

Specs are :
Head Size:
98 sq. in. / 632 sq. cm.
Length: 27 inches / 69 cm
Strung Weight: 11.5oz / 326g
Balance: 5pts Head Light
Swingweight: 308
Stiffness: 64
Beam Width: 22 mm Straight Beam
Composition: Carbon / Fiberglass
Power Level: Low-Medium
Swing Speed: Fast
Grip Type: Sensor Tour Handle
String Pattern:
16 Mains / 19 Crosses
Mains skip: 8T, 8H
One Piece
No shared holes
String Tension: 50-60 pounds

The test done by Triple B I think was decent. I hope Triple B or TW do a more exhaustive test on this racquet. I think this was requested before by someone else.

If I ever win the lottery, I'm making the new epitome of players rackets.
the 70 sqin prostaff.

16 oz, 18 main 20 cross, 10 pts head light. 27 in long. 17mm beam
Its going to play like a baseball bat. Then I'm stringing it at 80 lbs with natural gut.

I'm going to tear something probably, but omg the control and the feel would be exceptional.

EDIT: What am I? Stupid?
That's my worst idea yet.

70? That's still to big, you have to go down even further for the ultimate in pin point control and amazing feel.

10? 5? Yeah, around there. How about a racquet with a 20 square foot head? Oh yeah.

10rdc flex, 7mm beam, 25in headsize. Then, my friends, we'll have a badminton racket.
